I play clawhammer banjer, it's a hoot.
I like the minor sawmill type stuff and round mountain tunes.
Some of my favorites:
Over the Waterfall
Cluck Old Hen
Sail Away Ladies
Walk Along John to Kansas
Train on the...
Most hardcore pigs ever.
Seriously though, their gate is wierd as shit.
I've heard that people learning to tattoo use pig's skin to practice, can anyone verify that? I mean like.. removed from the pig, not like the above link.
I would say no to Jefferson park, it's got lots of homebums and heroin. The two H's of Eugene.
Also Russ T maybe should keep that info to PM or something as it is not really a squat and may not be good for all of the internets to show up looking for a place to crash. Lots of scumfucks come...
Do people drink because they don't care or do they not care because they drink? The world may never know, because everyone is too drunk to care.
"but fuck "anarchists" who aren't doing any positive work whatsoever in any communities, just getting drunk, travelling, and talking shit...
Woah, thanks for the introduction to this place. I appreciate that you know your shit when it comes to the wildlife and history of the area, makes me want to visit!
Now I have a reason to go back to the east coast. Sounds like an adventure..
Re finn : Check out this neat little article on butt flaps.

I always thought they looked silly but it actually sounds like it might come in handy while riding trains, keep the bum warm and the ass of the pants from...
I don't think that disagreeing with someone is oppressive. So stop trying to oppress me by saying the things I'm saying are oppressive! The drunk natives in AZ are depressing as hell. I think at this point the US government would rather have the remaining native population not as fucked so that...
Fuck yeah 614crust, now to start putting carboys under all of my favorite bridges so when I roll through towns I have some ready to drink!
How about a hobo homebrew network? Bring some ingredients to the jungle, drink the batch and start a new one for the next tramp? Ah, if only a perfect hobo...
Cheap entertainment, fun with friends. Helps to go to sleep in the bushes.
I think that your 'government wants anarchists to get drunk so that they won't topple our regime' argument is giving anarchists too much credit. If it was big enough of a deal for the feds to make a plan to deal with...
They asked me for a bank account statement, then said that they couldn't tell from my ATM receipt that it was my account. And asked us a million questions like "how did you find out about our public transportation system?" It took about 7 hours for us to get across the border (compounded by a...
Well here's the NOAA population estimates for the Puget Sound chinook :
Might want to read up a little on the laws around there, poaching can get you landed in jail pretty easy.
Jared Diamond (Guns Germs and Steel & Collapse)
Roger Zelazny (The First & Second Chronicles of Amber)
The Northwest Salmon Crisis : A Documentary History (Joseph Cone & Sandy Ridlington)
Salmon Without Rivers (Jim Lichatowich)
The Fountainhead (Ayn Rand)

I like a few of the bands you put up there (the dead & the doors), but I have to say that it was really awesome to see that you put the Beatles as #1. Glad to see someone else thinks they are overrated!
I am hoping here to get some discussion going on environmentally oriented projects that are going on around the country. I'm sure we all realize how horribly we have fucked up many of our remaining natural areas. It's depressing to me seeing how many people realize this but how few of them are...
They can only stop you if you let them, especially if you are 18. I warmed my parents up eventually to the idea that you could still hitch-hike without being murdered, which was a hard sell since my mother had a -very- sketchy experience hitch-hiking in the 70s. My dad as well took a cross...
Very cool shots. Makes my feet itch. Great shots of bagby and other spots in Oregon. I used to use blogspot but got frusterated. Wordpress seems complicated to set up, as a non-techie person. Am I missing something about it? Anyone have a link to a good tutorial or willing to explain it?
yeah it was nice hanging out with you guys. always nice to meat some riders that are laid back cool folks! good luck getting on out of this neck of the woods, let me know how catching out of eugene goes!
Yeah, you made that point with the first post. Then the second one came and I was like "damn, Wider is really after this one". Then the third post came and it just seemed like overkill. You made your point, no need to use her as a punching bag because you think it's stupid that she would ask for...
A friend and I on a long trip took his iTouch (like an iPhone without the phone part). It was really handy because, although it doesn't have phone service, you can just use skype to call anywhere in the world for free once you get internet service. It had a transit system application so we could...
1. Sounds fucking rad, and like an awesome deal. The insurance you could just pay all at once if you can swing it. Like, pay 600-700 bucks for 6 months of insurance up front then when your six months is up, stop driving it for a while. That way you don't have to always have a job to support your...
I would say take care of yourself by eating well, sleeping enough and exercising. The alcohol is tempting but it doesn't work, just delays dealing with the problem, and it can become a problem in itself. And no one likes a sobbing self-pitying drunk. It's going to suck but it will suck less if...
You know, people (especially younger ones) eat up cool slogans/designs involving their city's name. If you made a cool design or funny saying with your city's name on it and screenprinted some T-shirts I bet you could get people to buy them for a couple bucks profit. My advice here is sell them...
STP Gathering 2010
If anyone needs a ride from Western Oregon (Salem area) and can pitch gas money I've got room for 1 in my rig. At this point it looks like at least jbx and I will be coming down for this.
